Lodgepole Pine from Far Northern Canada Performs Well in a Milder Swedish Environment

Results of a height assessment made in a 12-year-old experimental plantation at latitude 62° N, altitude 550 m in Sweden indicate that the productivity of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. var. latifolia Engelm.) from the very far north of its distribution range in western Canada was generally good. Only small differences in average performance could be ascribed to variation in the geographical origin of 801 open-pollinated, single-tree progenies collected at latitudes ranging from 51 to 64° N and altitudes from 400 to 1700 m in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory.
